If you tried to copy something to the renamed custom field using the adjustment dialog box opened from the Tag Manipulation menu, then that bug is fixed in the new 4.4.6 update.

I tried to have the addon copy something from "involved people" to a custom field but it doesn't seem to do anything. No error message either. Other actions with the addon work.
Any help?

Morning


I was wondering is it possible to use this script to take out everything at the end of a title that is contained in brackets

ie

"I Asked (feat. Becca Stevens & Vдsen)" to leave just "I Asked"


thanks

Hiya

Just a quickie, what's the normal subscription for the 'better version' and what do I get that's different. Will upgrade tonight, if acceptable.

Thanks

Have you restarted MM and/or rebooted Win since the problem occured?

Tag Manipulation Presets - can't set parameter(s) anymore

Post by plopske » Thu Mar 31, 2016 5:30 pm

Hi,

I have been using the Tag Manipulation addon forever. It has helped me tag some 100,000+ mp3's. Just today something changed and
I am not asked for parameters anymore. I just get a 'Confirm - Yes/No' window.
For example: I tried to use Auto-increment Tracknumber with specified starting value. Normally I would be able to
enter a starting value. Now I can just confirm and it will auto-increment with a/the default starting value.

I probably changed something myself, but what? Please help me to change back to the original way of working....

advTHANKSance

You could make a batch with the mentioned two presets and you would get exactly what you want.


Yeah, I already figured I could batch a couple together before I posted the issue or use 1. (you provided) and "Remove specified number of words from
end of into field". I was just looking for a single one, as the one that I tried before posting and the # 1. that you provided were so close,
I just got "caught up in it". But ultimately the point of the batch is to keep from having to have/write out single presets for every little scenario. I get it.
Makes sense. Having to do that would get to be quite the headache after a while. However, though, in some scenarios, I believe it necessary or at least
extremely helpful (like the last one you helped me with, via email).

Thanks again Z, you da man!

Maybe something like this:
1. Assign the right side of <From Field> after specified number of words to <Into Field>
2. Keep only specified number of words on the begin of <Into Field>


1. Most, if not all, of your "Assign" presets are really just assigning by copying. But this is almost it. Except, I need it to "Move"; not Copy/Assign.
So, it would be "Move the right side of <From Field> after specified number of words to <Into Field>" with the move function being the only difference.
2. That one only deals with a single field by simply chopping of the end half. It doesn't move the end half of it to another field.

Mod number 1 with "move" and we've got a winner. :)

Thanks, as always

I'm trying to "move" the right half of the following line to another field:
1976 / 2005 CD BMG Japan

So, the result would be:
| CD BMG Japan| in the destination field, and | 1976 / 2005 | to remain in the source field. Vertical bars are to merely represent field perimeter.

I tried some of the "right-most", "left-most" field separator presets
and came close with one but the problem in this situation is that "space" is the separator.
Only whole words, digits, or symbols seem to work as separators. I can't just leave a space between the "", e.g. " "
because there are many spaces. I can't find one that does something like, maybe, "Move end of <From Field> after left-most number of words to <Into Field>".
